Mapping live George Floyd protest videos

The Washington Post’s Interactive Spatial Video explorer

Recreating live news events online is hard – but bringing them to life so you canfeel them is harder. Just published by the Washington Post and designed by The Pudding (and supported by my team at the Google News Initiative), this visual joins together Google Earth studio animations and places YouTube live videos on location so you can see how the protest after George Floyd’s death spread across the city. It’s a combination of great work by some of my favourite interactive designers and includes some nifty navigation tricks like the bars on the right that really help see the events as they happened.
